To exclaim or murmur

I forgot how much I love reading.  One of my goals for 2014 was to read a book a month.  I’m ahead of schedule with 5 down.  It feels awesome.

Tonight is the Full Crow Moon also known as the Worm Moon and the Sap Moon. Called the crow moon for the cawing crows signal the end of winter. As the earth thaws worms start to appear. And it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.As we move to Ostara, the Spring Equinox on March 20th when both day and night are at equal length we are reminded to find our own inner balance. focus inward toward inner wisdom and self analysis.This Full Moon is about cultivating and growing, just as the Suns energy and nature is doing. Plant the seeds of new ventures now, plan for the future, think about what it is you want and need and set about putting a plan into action. Use this month for magical workings related to rebirth and regrowth. New life is blooming during this phase of the moon, as is prosperity and fertility.The Full Moon always illuminates our inner feelings and desires, so emotions can be quite raw and enhanced. The Full Moon is in the sign of Virgo. This means we may be over critical of ourselves and of others, try not to see the bad in everything instead look for the good. The Virgo sign is also a very practical sign so use it’s energy for getting jobs done that you have been putting off for a while. Tackle any problems and bring them to an end.The Full Moon phase brings light to whatever was hidden in the darkness or buried within the subconscious such as emotional pain or our deepest desires, but once awareness happens you are able to make realistic changes. Our emotional levels move like strong turbulent waves in the Ocean during high tide For some during this Full Moon in Virgo. Emotional reactions may be strong, energies may feel irritable or uptight, but don’t worry this will pass.Let the energy of this Full Moon wash over you and cleanse your spirit, use it to heal you both emotionally and physically. Let the moonlight bathe and sooth you, body and soul. Seek a balance of light and dark and see the truth in your life however much it may hurt, only then can we do something about it.Associations.Colors: Green, yellow, light purpleGemstones: Bloodstone, aquamarineTrees: Dogwood, honeysuckleGods: Isis, the Morrighan, Artemis, Cybele, PersephoneHerbs: High John, pennyroyal, wood betony, apple blossomElement: WaterHave a blessed Full Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.

This explains a lot.

Kid President’s Letter To A Person On Their First Day Here

THIS FOREVER

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.”
— Ayn Rand (via daily-charms)

Thank you for this. Funny how we are all connected.

Mama said there’d be days like this

Life is the best.  And also THE WORST sometimes.  Today was just one of those days where a dark cloud was seriously hovering over me.  I was feeling exhausted by the fact that I have to shave my legs and comb my hair.  Like taking care of personal hygiene is just so fucking daunting.  Most days I can flip the switch to turn my mind off and somehow bravely face every boring monotonous work day because I know what I am working towards.  Today was not one of those days.  The bullshit was just too hard to ignore.  I was also fighting with my boyfriend.  But in my head, you know?  He wasn’t doing anything except being his normal mellow gentle self but I want him to be something he’s not.  Because I’m mad that I want to be something that I’m not.  I get tired of struggling and pushing against the tide.  So tired that I am bothered by combing my hair.  Sometimes it really does feel like my life is unfolding in a way that is strangely familiar.  I’ve seen this plot before.  Are we all walking around like this?!  UGH.  But at the end of the day, your lover will greet you at the door with a great big hug and kisses even though you really have been kind of jerk and don’t deserve it.  And there is Belgian beer and thai food and nail polish and Matthew McConaughey so it gets better.
